I have trouble getting up in the morning, standard for most people. I can set multiple alarms on my iPhone and none of them will even stir my sleep. I became frustrated that I couldn't find something to wake me, I tried several things around the house that I could set an alarm to wake me. Eventually I came to an old Quarts clock that has sat on a mantle piece for as long as I can remember. It also hasn't worked for all that time, but that wasn't due to the actual clock, but because of a missing back panel that held a single AAA battery into place.
